At long last, after 4 years of trading online, we now own a shop !
Four friends have come together to start an independent record shop in Yeovil.
For some years now we have sold our records at Acorn Music owned by Chris Lowe. Chris has been trading as an independent music/record shop retailer in Yeovil for over 40 years, but decided to retire March 2015.
An opportunity arose for Chris to move from retirement to semi-retirement (most people do it the other way around) by opening a shop at a new venture in Yeovil called Waterloo Music.
Chris approached Rock Wallaby and Steve Fox from Baldrecordman and asked if we would be interested in joining him and Anna (Chris's long serving and very patient assistant at Acorn Music)
Of course we said yes and the secret plans and clever tricks began.
Between the four of us we have designed, purchased and built the shop from scratch. A task made all the more challenging in a Grade II listed, and listing, building without one horizontal or vertical wall, right angles, level floor or solid brick to drill into.
Chris will have over four thousand CD's for sale and between Baldrecordman & Rock Wallaby we should have over six thousand 12" & 7" records for sale.
Waterloo and Acorn Records are set to become the music and entertainment hub of South Somerset, selling guitars, drums, gig tickets and much more.
Waterloo is an exciting venture and an irresistible proposition for those who want to be part of the vibrant South West music scene.
We opened on 25th July 2015
Steve from Baldmanrecords, Anna & Chris from Acorn and Brad from Rock Wallaby.
